A Clayton County, Georgia, rape victim was saved when she called 911 during the attack after the suspect told her to call her boyfriend, according to police.

Police said that on Dec. 28, Robert Giles, 27, kidnapped the victim in Hapeville and brought her to a closed adult entertainment store, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Giles led the woman into the back of the store and prepared to rape her. 

It was then that he told her to call her boyfriend so he would be forced to listen to the rape.

The victim dialed 911 and told Giles that it was her boyfriend. The 911 operator went along with it.

“She explained to him [the 911 operator] what the perpetrator had told her; that he was wanting him to listen while she was being raped,” Clayton County Maj. Joe Woodall said, according to the Journal-Constitution.

“It was quick thinking on his behalf," Woodall added. "In fact, [it] might have saved her life.”

The operator, who reportedly attempted to talk Giles out of raping the woman, sent police to the location, where they caught him in the act.

“They were able to stop it right then and there and snatched him right from the car,” Woodall said. 

Giles was arrested and charged with rape, false imprisonment and obstruction. Hapeville police are also planning kidnapping charges against him.
